Announcing the Moonwell Ambassador Program!

What is the program?

The Moonwell Ambassador program is a community driven initiative that seeks to empower users to participate in protocol development, while also earning rewards for their contributions. An active community is not only key to the success of a project, but also an avenue of opportunity for those who wish to invest more than just their crypto assets.

This program will allow users to create materials that benefit the ecosystem, further emphasize the values of Moonwell, and provide users with the opportunity to gain some experience in the blockchain community. Users will be able to host events in the community, have closer access with the team, and learn more about borrowing and lending in DeFi.

What are the goals?

The goal is to bring together and strengthen the community around the core values of Moonwell — education, awareness, and promoting the development of alternative financial systems. Additionally, we want to create an ecosystem that thrives by creating and allowing users to express themselves and feel part of the community. This would allow users to gain experience by working on projects directly, and gaining visibility with their work by providing them with meaningful tasks in order to motivate them and encourage development.

This will be accomplished by an effectively structured program, with a leaderboard and “task lists” that allow users to complete tasks, and earn points which can be put towards various rewards: participate in ecosystem grants, spend points at the swag shop, receive airdrop gifts, special discord roles, and more.

Regular events and opportunities to contribute and interact with the Moonwell team, partners, and each other, would bring the community together and also keep an ongoing level of excitement and activity within the community for users to routinely contribute.

What are the benefits?

These points are redeemable quarterly, where awards will be distributed to the highest points acquired within the quarter. Grants will be awarded only after a proposal is made by the community nominating top 3 quarterly users for their contributions.

Alternatively, users can also use their points to acquire merchandise from the swag shop.

Ambassador points are tracked through a spreadsheet that is maintained, based on genuine user submissions.
